You should probably put it on a board but if that doesn't work, you could try putting something weighing 12 pounds on the board or in your pockets or whatever.

My wii balance board says it's working fine then won't weigh me it gets stuck in a cycle of checking it's turned on then trying to weigh me but it says "Unable to measure. Try again and remain still...


It may be that the batteries in the board are dying. If you ave not replaced the batteries recently, I recommend doing so. If it is the batteries, the board is trying to communicate with the Wii and can but cannot sent all the info about whoever is standing on it. It simply does not have enough juice.

My Wii fit weighs me at about 20lbs less than all other scales (maybe I shouldn't complain). How do I resist it so it will be more accurate?


Are you doing it on carpet? Mine does the same and I put the board on a hard suface and it's accurate.

My wii fit board keeps jumping in tightrope game


We had that issue one game and the problem was that we had multiple users all using the same Mii character but weighing between a range of 60lb between people. Because the fit uses weight to determine if you are actually jumping (since you're not supposed to break contact with the fit board) if one user weighs more than the previous person who's weight was used as the calibration, the second person will seem to be in a constant 'jump' state. Try resetting the weight for the Mii you're using, or just recalibrate between users. This totally solved our problems!

Wii Balance Board thinks I'm on it all the time!


Make sure of a couple of things and try again -

If you are on semi-shag carpet, try using the little foot extenders. They may not seem like much but they can help.

If you are on moderate to thick carpet, you may need a board to set the Wii Fit Balance Board on.

If you are on a wood floor, you can (but don't have to) remove the little foot extenders.

Another little gremlin can be in those silicone covers. If you have one, I'll bet that's the culprit. As nice as they are to keep the board clean, they can actually attach to the non-moving part of the scale (the bottom) to the moving (surface) part. Be sure that your silicone cover is not interfering with the normal movement of the board.

Finally, be sure that you are always using YOUR setting while exercising or it will not be calibrated correctly. Also be sure that when you start, you are not on the board when it calibrates for the first time after turning it on. If the weight on the board differs by about 5 lbs or more than what it thinks you weigh, it will pitch a little wii fit.

I hope you find this advise helpful. If not, though, please don't label this advise as "inappropriate". A "Thanks for Trying" would be just fine.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wii balance board weight differently after put on a wii board sk


Sometimes the silicone skin can have an effect on the Wii Fit Balance Board if it gets pinched. Make sure that it is not interfering with the the total movement of the top portion of the Wii Fit balance board and the space between the top and the middle of the unit. If there is any obstruction, refit the skin on the balance board.

Wii fit weighin too light!


I would suggest that you ensure that the board is calibrated properly and that you don't step on it until directed to do so. I'm sure you're already doing this, because it won't let you go on without doing so.

The other solution I would offer is to change the batteries in the unit, and ensure that you are setting the Balance Board on a smooth, sturdy, and flat surface. If you are on shag carpet, it will not function properly. If you have average carpet, try using the little adapters that attach to the feet.

Remember that for the purposes of this program, the exact weight isn't what is most important, but relative weight. Any time you are tracking weight loss, be sure to mark your progress using the same scale. If you chart the Wii vs traditional scales, you should notice that the decrease is the same, regardless of what your starting point may happen to be.

Good luck!

I'm trying to go through the setup to WII fit. My child did the body test with no problems a couple of days ago. I keep getting an error (fidgeting) when I try to take the body test. Tried to do fit test...


If your Wii Fit Balance Board is on carpet, be sure to use the extra foot pads that came with your board. If your carpet is really thick, you may need to use a flat woodend board to set the balance board on.

Finally, make sure that you are NOT using your child's Miii to do your own balance test. Each user of Wii Fit must use their own Mii character.

If you don't like my suggestion, please don't rate this suggestion a '1'. If my suggestion doesn't help, the problem may exceed the scope of what can be answered here. You will need to contact Nintendo directly through their website and open a problem ticket.

Good Luck!
